Victorian alphabet and number wool needlework sampler sewn by Sara Ann Chambers a pupil at Kimberley School in 1868. Around the edge is a fancy border decorated with flowers with rows of the alphabet and numbers in lines within. At the centre is a verse with Sara's name, the school name and the date 1868. The colours are bright and it displays well on the wall. Original frame with a wooden backboard, it's been opened and cleaned with the back then being resealed but this was done a number of years ago. Happy to answer questions.
The sampler view is 11 3/4 by 12 1/4 inches 30 by 31 cm. The frame measures 16 by 16 1/2 inches 40.25 by 42 cm.
